Savannah, Georgia

We went through Historic District, including Factors Walk, numerous squares, and the Historic Colonial Park Cemetery. More than 700 victims of the 1820 Yellow Fever epidemic are buried in Colonial Park Cemetery. The cemetery was already closed to burials before the start of the Civil War and no Confederate soldiers are buried there. Walking along the river, in Factors Walk, provides a good view of the Talmadge Memorial cable-stayed bridge.

The Arthur Ravenel Jr. Bridge, also known as the New Cooper River Bridge, is a cable-stayed bridge over the Cooper River in Charleston, South Carolina. The bridge is eight lanes. The bridge has a main span of 1,546 feet (471 m), the third longest among cable-stayed bridges in the Western Hemisphere. It was built using the design-build method and was designed by Parsons Brinckerhoff.
